|Unless the NFL twitter feed got hacked, it looks like the 2012 schedule will|
be released on Tuesday, April 17.
Rumors had been swirling for weeks that April 17 would be the day (we mentioned it back on April 4), but the NFL didn't make the announcement official until today.
A couple schedule tidbits:
The Bengals have opened on the road in six of the last eight seasons.
Each team is guaranteed at least one prime time game this season, so the Bengals will be on at night at least once. Coming off a playoff year, our guess is that they get three night games: one Pittsburgh, one Baltimore and Carson Palmer's return to Cincinnati.
